Logitech acquired a series of companies over the last 10 years, including audio-related companies, such as Jaybird and Ultimate Ears. Their latest addition to the acquisition roaster is the gaming headset company ASTRO Gaming. Logitech G manager and VP Ujesh Desai announced that the company bought ASTRO for $85 million cash.

The press release issued by Logitech states that “ASTRO’s history of producing award-winning headsets for pro esports and console gamers perfectly complements the PC gaming expertise Logitech G is best known for.”  With this move, Logitech intends to make the ASTRO headsets available for PC gamers as well. Desai also commends the ASTRO A10 entry level headset and mentions that the ASTRO brand and product line will remain unchanged.

Logitech is ready  to close the deal in August this year, and with this merger completed, it will be entering an already crowded gaming headset market dominated by Razer, Steelseries and LucidSound.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
